Pamela Campagna, MBA, CMC

President

I’m a Certified Management Consultant (CMC®) and an educator who is passionate about working with clients and students to drive strategic, professional development and operational results. Whether it’s developing a business model, executing a strategy or conducting a workshop, I apply business insights and pragmatic action for productive outcomes.

My career has included successful work as a product manager, marketer, management consultant, entrepreneur, and teacher. My firm, BLUE SAGE Consulting, Inc. is a certified woman-owned boutique business consulting firm specializing in global strategy, business optimization & resource development. We work with organizations to develop and implement business strategies that improve the organization’s agility and business outcomes.

I believe that learning extends from the field into the classroom, and back again. I’ve taught and facilitated graduate, undergraduate, and executive education courses in marketing, leadership, sales management, business and communications, strategy, and project management in more than 500 corporate and educational settings, including Boston College’s Carroll School of Management, Northeastern University, and Boston University. I’m currently a Professor of Practice at HULT International Business School, and an Adjunct at Ashridge Executive Education, Hult International Business School.

I’m active in the community and industry as a Past President of the local chapter of the Institute of Management Consultants (IMCUSA) and a former member of the Marketing and Ethics Committees. I’m also a board member of CMC-Global Institute, where I’m a member of the Marketing & Advocacy Committee.

BLUE SAGE is certified by WBENC (Women’s Business Enterprise); the Small Business Administration (Women Owned Small Business); State of Massachusetts (Supplier Diversity Office); State of New York (ESD) and a member of the Supplier Connection consortium.

I hold a BA from SUNY Albany (NY) and an MBA in International Business from The American University in Washington, DC and I’m currently pursuing an Executive Doctorate in Organization Change (PhD) at Ashridge Executive Education outside of London, UK.

Frank Campagna

Frank Campagna

Senior Consultant

For over twenty-five years I’ve worked intimately with clients in healthcare, information technology, manufacturing, federal, state and local government, software, education, marketing, and business intelligence.

I was a member of the original design and start-up team for City Year, a model “urban Peace Corps” in Boston funded entirely with private money, which now thrives in 16 US cities, London and South Africa. I helped establish the Training and Technical Assistance Center in Washington DC for the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the new federal agency housing AmeriCorps, VISTA, Learn and Serve America, Senior Corps, and the Peace Corps.

In my private consulting practice, I’ve conducted trainings on the innovative use of technology by non-profits to leading organizations such as the Kellogg Foundation, Ford Foundation, Echoing Green Foundation, the Presidio Leadership Center, ROCA, Citizen Schools, YouthBuild, Public Allies and The Chicago Campaign School.

I’ve worked for over sixteen years with BLUE SAGE Consulting where I’ve consulted and conducted workshops, market research and produced digital and multimedia material for corporate clients as diverse as Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Pharmacia, IBM, Concord Communications, Steelpoint-Zantaz, Bryan Construction, Gomez, TVCompass, and Cisco Systems.

I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Cornell University.

OUR ASSOCIATES

 

We work together with a variety of professionals to get the job done.  We maintain a robust network of colleagues and partners with varied experience. Our “tribe” includes experts in design thinking, operational efficiency and technology deployment, among others. Our business relationships are established and proven, and that is what we offer to our clients.

Why Hire a CMC® (Certified Management Consultant)?

When you consider using a management consultant, look for the CMC® certification, awarded to those select consultants (only 10,000 worldwide) who have met global standards for competence, ethics, and results.

  • Clients can be confident that the consultant who has earned the CMC certification has a history of excellent performance in delivering results to clients; has met world-class standards of competence, ethics, and client satisfaction; and has maintained this level of professionalism through education and required periodic certification renewal.
  • All these give you confidence in knowing that the CMC you’ve chosen has passed the toughest certification in the profession, and the only consulting certification that has been ISO-accredited and recognized by the insurance industry as reducing risk.  You can be sure that the same professionalism required for certification will be demonstrated to you.
  • The earning of the CMC by a management consultant is no trivial matter; it can be likened to an attorney passing the Bar, an accountant receiving a CPA, an engineer obtaining their PE license, or a doctor receiving their medical license.  A candidate must submit to the most rigorous vetting process in the profession that includes receiving satisfaction surveys from clients, taking in-depth examinations covering consulting competencies and ethics, and sitting for a panel interview by senior CMCs.

Hiring a Certified Management Consultant means that you and your project will benefit from a consultant who demonstrates the highest level of competence.

-VP Medical Education and Publishing, Pharmacia Corporation

“I had the pleasure of working with Pam at a few firms, one where I hired her as a consultant to help launch new marketing and sales initiatives under an extraordinarily tight timeline. Pam is a strategic thinker who cuts through the noise and identifies the high impact issues and opportunities. She maps out clear plans and then tirelessly executes. Pam just jumps in and does what it takes to achieve the desired targets and immediately earns the respect of the teams she works with. I would highly recommend Pam!”

-Vice President, North American Sales, Ipswitch

“I am recommending Pam as not only an accomplished and professional management consultant, but also as a person that is extremely ethical. Pam is not only a bright and very analytical hard worker but also processes a rare skill. A skill that is able to deliver good or bad news in a way that allows people to adjust without the fear that usually comes with unexpected change. During the time that I worked with Pam, I found her to be trust worthy, respectful, thoughtful and forthright in a way that helped all members of our team to be extremely productive. A manager could not ask for a better team member.”
